Raleigh Ritchie – Big & Scared Lyrics

Big & Scared By Raleigh Ritchie

Little me
Let me tell you kid who you’re gonna be
When you turn the lights out you won’t be scared anymore
You won’t even care anymore, honestly

Little bean
All that sugar’s fucking up your teeth (Won’t curse, sorry)
Messing with your gums
And things won’t get butter if you run
Nothing’s right when you’re 21
Take a break, look into the sun and celebrate the human you’ve become
I want you to be proud of what you’ve done
Little bean

Sometimes I wish I could be anyone other than me
But then I just breathe, think about who I wanna be

I know I’m not around
I know I let you down
But I want to be better for you
Let me do that now
You’re my favourite human
So you should be prepared
I’ll help you get through it
When you’re big and scared

Little bean
There are things scarier than clowns
I’m sorry to break it to you now
The monster in the dark is all around
But trust me you can beat it in a team
So try and open up to someone else
You can’t fight a monster by yourself
No one ever knows you super well
But there’s a person I want you to meet

And when that person offers out their hand
I want you to take it like a man
Hold with every muscle that you can
It’s the closest you could ever feel to free

Sometimes I wish I could be anyone other than me
But then I just breathe, think about who I wanna be

I know I’m not around
I know I let you down
But I want to be better for you
Let me do that now
You’re my favourite human
So you should be prepared
I’ll help you get through it
When you’re big and scared

Sadness will be par for the course
And you will feel hopeless, you’re a child of divorce
And you will feel like you can’t do it anymore
And one day you will try and you will fail to end it all
And that will be the saddest day you’ve ever felt before
But trust me when I say that you deserve to live for more
And when you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders
Remember what I told you

I know I’m not around
I know I let you down
But I want to be better for you
Let me do that now
You’re my favourite human
So you should be prepared
I’ll help you get through it
When you’re big and scared

I keep thinking I’m in a rush
Maybe I’ve been thinking too much
Maybe I don’t want it enough
It’s way too much pressure

I keep thinking I’m in a rush
Maybe I’ve been thinking too much
Maybe I don’t want it enough
It’s way too much pressure, pressure
